I have an Arabian jasmine that isn't growing well in the ground. How do I encourage growth and care for it?

The jasmine is planted in sandy soil that I prepared last springtime with fertiliser and water retention products. It is in full sun but isn't creating new growth or climbing the trellis that it is leaning on. I'm worried that I don't know how to properly care for it this autumn in preparation for winter.

Answer: Hi Emily,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Being a temperate plant, Arabian jasmine needs regular feeding and watering. Sanding soil and full sun location are not particularly suitable for it. I would suggest transplanting to a semi-sun location and improving soil before planting by digging in some Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food.

To help encourage more flowers during the warmer months, feed the plant with Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Pelletised Plant Food. It’s enriched with Dynamic Lifter and has added nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to give your flowering plants the right balance of nutrients for their growing needs.
